What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Looking for a little advice/guidance re CETV and best route forward. Currently serving in the RAF seperated by mutual consent from my wife for just over a year, once it became clear there would be no reconcilliaction I wrote to Pensions people to enquire as how to get a CETV no reply in 3 months. My HR people are helpful but have no experience with such matters. Can anyone tell me does the CETV work from the current date requested or from the date at which i seperated? Is this the document i need to submit to her solicitor to work out a fair share of my pension (No problem giving my wife her fair share she worked hard with kids/service life etc, to in my opinion, earn it.

In the same situation myself. The CETV works from the date that it was raised. It is a snap shop of your pension rights on that day. Even if you are signed on for 22 years, the CETV will only reflect the pension rights on the day it is dated. For example, you are on 18 years of the 22 engagement on the date of the CETV, the CETV will show that the pension is payable at 65 years of age. As the CETV cannot predict that you will complete 22 years service. and at 18 years you are not entitled to immediate pension.
This CETV is used by solicitors to allocate pension sharing.
JPAC do not log all the requests for CETVs received or even acknowledge that they are actioning it. Just keep hastling the enquiry line. I sent my request by recorded delivery and they managed to find it just on the 3 month point.

Nice to see that its agreed that 94% of service wives do a good for thier husbands as an retired service person I also agree they do a wonderful job, unfortunately I come in that odd 6% that couldnt if their life depended on it. A share in the pension is fine but, hehehe. When its all thrown in that big pot for dishing out at the final hearing for settlement you may possibley be worse off with your wife getting up to 70% of all assests
